Limoux has a mostly mediterranean climate, dry hot summers, and fairly mild winters with the odd very cold snap. Lots of sunshine!

And, when it does get cold, (snow in Limoux is fairly exceptional) the town is well situated as a base for skiing, the nearest ski station being just an hour away. The view here is taken from one of our favourite walks up on the hills above the house.
